10 Reasons Houseplants Are Better Than Friends, Besides The Fact They LEAF You Alone

Since I've gotten my own place, I've been obsessed with houseplants. I talk to them and spend at least 10 minutes a day just hanging out with them. They are not only good friends — they are GREAT friends! They are pretty much better than all human friends, actually.

1. You can talk to them and they won't talk back 

2. You can never have too many of them 

3. Having lunch with them is cheap. They just drink water.

4. They grow, but won't grow away from you 

5. They're always down to hang out 

6. They don't judge you 

7. If you tell them they're getting too big, they don't care. They just want a new pot.

8. They can make the air you breathe cleaner, unlike friends, especially the ones that smoke 

9. They're always in your house, but you're not annoyed by it 

10. They're easily replaceable. If something happens, just get another one!

If you don't have a houseplant, now may be the time to get one.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Remembering the Memorial in Memorial Union

Sometimes it's hard to remember that Memorial Union at the University of Missouri is actually a memorial, not just a place to take a nap on a couch and get Starbucks.
